Capital One asks, “What’s in your wallet?”

I ask, “Who’s in your contacts?”

Am I talking about your string of friends on Facebook? No. I’m talking about who you’re really in touch with.

I have a handful of people that I reach out to via text or phone call on any given week. I’m not including my mechanic, chiropractor or tailor here. I’m talking about people who I communicate with by choice, not necessity.

I’ve recently added a couple of phenomenal people to my list who push me outside of my comfort zone and challenge me to be my absolute best. They continually inspire, and I aspire to reciprocate.

Average of five

Think about that statement. How true!

If you’re hanging out with two people who are extremely negative, you’ll be the third. If you’re hanging out with just one person who is passionately pushing toward their dream, you’ll be unstoppable.

My social networks have morphed over the years as I’ve become more confident in myself. I no longer seek people to simply party or “hang” with. Instead I seek authenticity and drive, which, once found, I can’t help but reflect in my own behavior.

If you’re surrounded by mediocre at best, you’ll be mediocre and not your best.

It’s that simple.
